Common Information

A number arrangement machine, when given a particular input, rearranges it following a particular rule. Illustrations of the input and the steps of arrangement is given below.

Input: 245, 316, 436, 519, 868, 710, 689

Step 1: 710, 316, 436, 519, 868, 245, 689

Step 2: 710, 316, 245, 519, 868, 436, 689

Step 3: 710, 316, 245, 436, 868, 519, 689

Step 4: 710, 316, 245, 436, 519, 868, 689

Step 4 is the last step for the given input

 Q. Common Information Question: 2/3 How many steps will be required to get the final output from the following input? Input: 544, 653, 325, 688, 461, 231, 857
 ✖ A. 6 ✔ B. 5 ✖ C. 4 ✖ D. None of the above

Solution:
Option(B) is correct

Input: 544 (13), 653 (14), 325 (10), 688 (22), 461 (11), 231 (6), 857 (20).

Step 1: 231 (6), 653 (14), 325 (10), 688 (22), 461 (11), 544 (13), 857 (20).

Step 2: 231 (6), 325 (10), 653 (14), 688 (22), 461 (11), 544 (13), 857 (20).

Step 3: 231 (6), 325 (10), 461 (11), 688 (22), 653 (14), 544 (13), 857 (20).

Step 4: 231 (6), 325 (10), 461 (11), 544 (13), 653 (14), 688 (22), 857 (20).

Step 5: 231 (6), 325 (10), 461 (11), 544 (13), 653 (14), 857 (20), 688 (22).

$\therefore$ Total 5 steps would be required.

Hence, option B is the correct choice.
